I plan to be gone for a while...

by on

Actually...I probably won't return. Something happened to my account a while back and I wasn't told what. However, after my account got back up I was told I would still be a moderator and led on for a short time. However, that appears not to be the case and I'm being offered a ranger position. I feel like I'm being punished for something that was out of my control in the first place. I hate to say this but there is too much BS associated with this site anymore. Provenby the fact that no one has bothered to respond to my PMs or emails, so I realize now I'm on the back burner and have been for a while. So if I'm not appreciated then so long. Also, I have NO money to eat, let alone for video games. I also have very little time being a full time college student. Not to mention the personal problems I've been having lately.

I might stop by from time to time to talk to my long time friends, but other than that I'm gone.

Sayonara!

Putting The Pieces Back Together...

by on

Recently I learned of the lies that my fiancee (whom I've been with for 4 years) has been telling me about his bills and his financial state. It's been quite a shock and the lies were very elaborate. I'm now in control of his budget, but because of the amount of time this has gone on, the fact that he has done this in the past, AND this ruins all of our plans that we had for the future has made me re-think things. I think I'm in shock right now, but I do still love him. I just don't trust him. Trust is essential to a relationship. I'm hoping that does come back...

As for the rest of my life...it's going. Not smoothly with my mother because she hates Michael, but other than that life is decent. I can't wait for this month to be over for several reasons. First, I will be done with my Summer II semester. Second, we should be out of the budget sinkhole. Third, one of my best friends will be coming back from Japan and in August the Fall semester starts :)

Anyways. That's life right now. In GS news, GlitchSpot has struck again! My level is stuck at 44% and has been for a while. But at least the problem is known and I'm sure it will get fixed. Can't wait to be a mod again also. I need to get back into the swing of things...again. lol

I'm back!

Something happened to my account there for a while, but it seems to all be sorted out now. :) I'm so happy to be back.

Brain Bootcamp aka Maymester

by on

I thought that Maymester would be difficult, but worth it. And...it is. However it's like bootcamp for my brain! Perhaps if I was taking something other than a high level history course it would be easier but right now my brain feels like it's going to explode. I started this monday and next monday is midterms! Well, at least it's not a lot of information to remember, but I have to have a 10 page paper based off of 8 news articles and interviews finished by the 24th. :( So much stress. But, at least it will be over soon! I'm taking a vacation afterwards because I can tell I'm going to need one. lol I had no break in the one week I had off between Spring semester and Maymester because I was sick (sinus/bronchitis/back problems).

Yes...I a nice vacation is in order before Summer II starts in July (and then Fall semester right after).

Please Don't Go HotSpot!

by on

Since I'm on painkillers for my back and medication for my bronchitis/sinus infection, I'm going to keep this short because my brain is not all here. Not to mention that I've had some VERY bad news today (besides the cancelling of the HotSpot) that makes me wonder how much harder things can get.

The icing on my **** cake though is finding out that Magrino was laid off and the HotSpot cancelled. It's a very sad day indeed. I've been listening since I joined the site in 2006 (almost 6 years now) and it's been something I look forward to every week. I'm going to miss all the humor, news, and guests. I'm glad the show lasted this long and hopefully it will one day be back.

Bronchitis with a thrown out back...oh joy!

by on

Yes. Not too long ago I hurt my back doing Zumba, but thought it was normal to have those horrible pains and kept working out. Also, the university's awful chairs didn't help anything. So recently I went to the doctor and she gave me some medicine and said not to do anything to strain in.
...Now I have Bronchitis again (20 times in 5 years! And I don't smoke). At least my back being in agony every time I cough is taking my mind off the pain coming from my lungs. lol

And to top it all off, I have one week until Maymester starts! Maymester btw is a course (you can only take one) that lasts roughly 2 weeks. I'm taking the history of American Pop Culture and I'm a history major, so it shouldn't be too hard...but I don't want to be sick the entire 2 weeks! :S

SOOOOOO Busy

by on

First off, college. I have three finals and three 10 page papers due within the next week 1/2. This wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't having to fight to take summer courses. FA has given me $1000 for Summer 1 and $1000 for Summer II, but to get any of that money you have to take 6 course hours. The unfortunate thing is it is $440 per credit hour. So basically they only pay $1000 per c.lass leaving me to pay about $550 (other fees included) out of pocket. So, instead I'm now trying to take the courses at my old technical college, but I'm not sure if my funds will transfer. :S I could be getting all these documents signed for nothing.

Also, I have a job interview at my local library. If I get this job I will finally get my foot in the door in the field of work I want to go into. *crosses fingers* I'm just a little worried they won't work with me after the Summer semester is over. I have a heavy course load this Fall and can't change my schedule.
BTW: Taking Chinese 121, Japanese 221, Philosophy 517 (philosophy of languages), Japanese Film, and History 393 (history of Biology and Medicine). Also take a health and wellness c.lass to try and stay healthy.
This is what it looks like:

I can't wait until all undecided BS is over with so I can rest easy. :)

Psychology of Video Games Course

by on

Since this actually pertains to video games, I felt I should make a short blog about it. My university offers many course on video game development, as other colleges do. However, this may they are offering the Psychology of video games. It's not only looking at the potential for video games causing violence (a hotly debated subject), but it also looks at the positive effects that video games can have on people.

Sadly, I cannot take this course as it doesn't count torwards anything for me and I can only take one c.lass during a Maymester, but I'm just happy that this kind of thing is being offered at all.

Ah...vacation

by on

Finally. Spring Break is here and I am leaving for my vacation tomorrow. Me and my fiancee aren't going anywhere far away and but it's special to us. I'm looking forward to finally getting to relax. Even though it is Spring Break, I've been studying way too much. I have a book to read for CHIN 398D (Love and Revolution Lit.), so I've been trying to do that. I've also been studying Japanese like a crazy person. I'm only in my second class and I'm making all As on every quiz...but I just don't feel like I speak it well enough when put on the spot and it drives me insane. Mainly because our teacher always puts us the spot. :P Also, particles and -te forms of verbs. The bane of my existance. lol I think I'm getting better, but all this focus on class work will drive me insane! I need to get out of the house and leave all my books behind so I can truly relax...and I can't wait!

Although, I also can't wait to get back from Spring Break. I NEED to know my grades for my midterms! Now that I'm taking high level c.lasses, I'm taking a bunch of c.lasses that don't test on anything. They grade on participation mainly and only have one or two papers the entire semester (although some have a test). It makes me nervous because I really want a 4.0 this semester! It's a personal goal I set for myself every semester. Sometimes I get it, sometimes I don't...but I always strive for it. Ugh...my OCD. One of the reasons I have anxiety.
^ This is the reason I need to get away :P

Anyways, hope everyone is doing well. :) *packs up*

Midterms = busy (plus good stuff!)

by on

Wow. It's been non-stop crazyness. Luckily my midterm for Anime was easy and my one for Japanese wasn't too bad, but all the paper writing on top of studying for those tests has taken it's toll. Tomorrow, it's all over and I can't wait. Now I just have to stress out about signing up for classes for the May, Summer I and II, AND Fall semesters (all at the same time).
I'm going to get two high level history c.lasses out of the way in the summer and a lab. Then in the Fall I'm taking Japanese Culture, Japanese Film, Japanese 221, Chinese 121, and a History Senior Seminar. Once I'm registered for c.lasses, THEN I can relax. Until then, even though midterms are over, my nerves are shot.

In other news, I got a new phone! My old phone was a 5-6 year old flip phone and it was dying a very slow and painful death. Luckily I've finally caught up to present day technology and have gotten me a Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4G. I LOVE IT. :) My fiancee got a black one and I got the white one. So happy!

That's about all that's going on right now...hope everyone is doing alright!
